Cricket Scotland’s board resigns after racist lawsuits

According to Cricket Scotland, allegations of racism have resulted in the resignation of all 14 members of the board of directors. Twitter was used to announce the departure of Cricket Scotland’s board of directors. Numerous complaints of racial discrimination have been filed as a result of the review, which will be published on Monday. A Cricket Scotland spokesperson stated, “Cricket Scotland will work in partnership with Sportscotland with immediate effect to ensure that the appropriate governance, leadership, and support is in place for the organisation and the sport in the days ahead.

These arrangements will be reviewed following the publication of the report into racism in cricket in Scotland and updated accordingly.” In a letter to Gordan Arthur, the temporary chief executive, the board of directors expressed “deep regret” for anyone who has experienced racism in Scotland. We believe that we must now step aside to facilitate the necessary transition. They have welcomed Aamer Anwar’s resignation, who represents two of the complainants. The all-time leader in wickets for Cricket Scotland, Majid Haq, accused the organisation of being “institutionally racist.”

In a November 2013 interview, Haq and his former teammate Qasim Sheikh described the hostility they had suffered during their careers. Both men claimed that they were treated differently than their white teammates owing to the colour of their skin. SportScotland has recruited Plan4Sport, an organisation that specialises in equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), to conduct a research that has received hundreds of comments.

“We will work in partnership with Sport Scotland with immediate effect to ensure appropriate governance, leadership & support is in place for sport in the days ahead,” said the board.
